Chick-fil-A supporters recognize appreciation day

Associated Press
August 1, 2012

ATLANTA óChick-fil-A supporters are eating at the chicken chain's restaurants as the company continues to be criticized for an executive taking a public position against same-sex marriage.

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, a Baptist minister, declared Wednesday "Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day."

A spokeswoman for the Rev. Billy Graham says the 93-year-old evangelist ate a Chick-fil-A lunch, including a chicken sandwich and waffle fries, at his North Carolina home.

Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy told the Baptist Press last month that the Atlanta-based company was "guilty as charged" for backing "the biblical definition of a family." Gay rights groups and others answered with calls for boycotts.

Opponents of Cathy's stance have planned "Kiss Mor Chiks" for Friday, asking people of the same sex to show up at Chick-fil-A locations and kiss each other.

1. When you stuff that much fat into some 93 year old arteries you're askin for trouble

Be a shame if something happened to the good rev.

He scarfed down his entire daily caloric requirement in one sitting.

2. The lines here in Charlotte

Have been crazy. My first thought was they must be giving away free food. Then I started thinking Rush and Hannity must be behind it

3. People and their Facebook

accounts could be playing as big a part as talk radio. Just a guess.

7. Huge Turnout at Chick-Fil-A

 

The lines here in Virginia were insane all day long, apparently... I saw them for myself around 2PM, and they were nuts.

I love Chick-Fil-A, though - Even being a non-Christian, pro-gay marriage, Obama supporter, who wants much higher taxes (income AND Cap Gains) on anyone making over even $150K... I have people on BOTH sides of the aisle all angry at me, but whatever. They'll get over it!
